Lab 1: Stratix 5700 and 8000 Hardware Familiarization
About this Lab
In this lab, we will introduce you to the Stratix 5700 Managed Ethernet switch with Cisco technology and the Stratix 8000 layer 2
Ethernet Switch. You will also double- check the wiring of the Ethernet network.
Stratix 5700 Managed Ethernet Module
1. Look at the front of the Stratix 5700 switch.
The Stratix 5700 Managed Ethernet Switch (1783-BMS10CGN) is equipped with eight Fast Ethernet copper ports plus two
combo Gigabit (copper or SFP) ports. This switch is equipped with full firmware and has Network Address Translation (NAT)
capability.
The combo slots which support SFP support multi and single mode fiber. Rockwell Automation approved (Gigabit or 100 Mbps)
Ethernet SFP modules can be used to establish fiber-optic connections to other switches.
SFPs (Small Form factor Pluggable) are small modules that allow you to select from a variety of fiber optic
transceivers for the switch. You will need to select different SFPs depending on the speed and type of fiber
you are planning to use.
8 of 91
The Stratix 5700 can be managed via the Device Manager Web interface for configuration, troubleshooting and monitoring.
Using this software, real-time information can be viewed. In addition to the Device Manager, the switch can also be managed via
the Studio 5000 environment after Express Setup on the switch is complete.
Through Device Manager, a Front Panel view of the Stratix 5700 can be observed where switch components are color-coded to
indicate state of the switch. An existing fault or error condition can be observed to match the front of the physical switch. System
LEDs show status indications similar to the Stratix 8000.
A complete description of the System LEDs can be found in the Device Manager and the Hardware Manual
(Publication 1783-UM004).
Stratix 5700 Port Numbering
The Stratix 5700 uses Cisco’s standard port naming convention. Each port name has:
1.
A port ID that consists of port type:

Gigabit Ethernet for Gigabit ports (abbreviated as Gi), and

Fast Ethernet for 10/100 Mbps ports (abbreviated as Fa)
2. Unit number (always 1), and
3. Port number (1-2 for Gigabit ports, 1-18 for all others, depending on catalog numbers)
The Stratix 5700 Managed Ethernet Switch (1783-BMS10CGN) follows this port numbering convention:


There are two power connectors on the top left of the switch.
You can connect the switch to two separate power sources for redundancy. Additional connections on the power
connectors provide hardwired contacts for major and minor alarms.

The Express Setup button is located below the power connections. Express Setup allows you to easily configure the
switch for EtherNet/IP networks.

The Console port is a serial connection available on all Cisco hardware. The console port allows direct access to the
switch via Cisco’s Command Line Interface (CLI)

A complete description of the System LEDs can be found in the Device Manager and the Hardware Manual
(Publication 1783-UM002).

Below the console port are the Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The Stratix 8000 comes with two Gigabit Ethernet ports. There are two connectors for each port; a RJ-45 and an SFP
slot. The RJ-45 connector allows you to connect a standard Category 5e or better patch cable. The SFP slot allows
you to select the right fiber optic transceiver for your application.
The copper Gigabit Ethernet port support speeds of 10, 100, and 1000 mbps.
SFPs (Small Form factor Pluggable) are small modules that allow you to select from a variety of fiber optic
transceivers for the switch. You will need to select different SFPs depending on the speed and type of fiber
you plan on using.
You must use the Rockwell Automation ruggedized industrial SFPs in the Stratix 8000.

The 10/100 Base-TX ports are located on the right side of the switch. The Stratix 8000 is available with either four or
eight 10/100 ports on the base module. The eight port version is used in this lab.

The grounding lug is located at the lower right corner of the switch.

This cover can be removed to install optional expansion modules. There are two expansion modules available:

8 port 10/100 Base-TX (See Picture Below)

8 port 100 Base-FX fiber optic module (See Picture Below)
The switch can support up to two expansion modules. You can only have one 100 Base-FX fiber optic
expansion module install in the switch.
3.
Feel the bottom back side of the switch
The clear plastic tab on the bottom of the switch is the Compact Flash card. The Stratix 8000 stores the configuration and
Operating System on the Compact Flash card. In the event of a hardware failure the Compact Flash card can be moved to
the replacement switch. The replacement switch will boot with the correct configuration and Operating System.
The Stratix 8000 uses the Cisco Internetworking Operating System (IOS). At boot-up the switch copies the
configuration and IOS into RAM. The Compact Flash card can be removed while the switch is running.
However, you will not be able to save the configuration or boot the switch without the Compact Flash card
installed.
12 of 91
Stratix 8000 Port Numbering
The Stratix 8000 uses Cisco’s standard port naming convention. Each port name has three parts; the type of interface, the
module number, and the port number.
Port Name
Interface Type
Module
Port
gi1/1
Gigabit Ethernet

The ports are numbered from top to bottom and left to right. The port numbering for each interface type always starts at one.
Each switch has a port gi1/1 and a port fa1/1. The base unit is module one. The first expansion module is number two and the
second expansion module is number three.
You may see the terms “port” and “interface” used interchangeably. If you are configuring the switch using
the Studio 5000 or Device Manger the term “port” is used. If you are configuring the switch via the CLI the
term “interface” is used.

Lab 2: Configuring a Stratix 5700 Switch and reviewing its Add-On-Profile (AOP) and Controller
Tags.
About This Lab
In the past a Control Engineer would have inserted Ethernet modules and Remote IO devices in the I/O Configuration Tree of
Studio 5000 and communicate with little regard to the health or status of the network and switches until there was a problem.
Rockwell Automation has taken a more proactive approach to this problem and has developed a variety of Ethernet Switches
that have the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) built into the product. This gives us the ability to retrieve switch and network
diagnostic data directly from the switch via its Add-on-Profiles (AOP’s) into the Logix Controller so we can make informed
decisions when troubleshooting a problem instead of guessing where the problem might be.
In this lab you will add the Stratix 5700 AOP to a preconfigured Studio 5000 project. You will accomplish the following tasks:
 Adding the Stratix 5700 to the I/O tree.
 Exploring the Stratix 5700 and 8000 Add-on Profile and their corresponding tags.
 Configuring the Stratix 5700 using the Add-on Profile
To save time the project and tags have already been created for you.
Adding the Stratix 5700 to the I/O Configuration Tree of Studio 5000.
In this section, you will add the Stratix 5700 to the I/O Tree.
1.
Select the Studio 5000 project EIP_Basic_Line_START.acd by browsing through the Logix Files Folder found on
the Desktop: Logix Files\ EIP_Basic_Line_START.acd
2.
REVIEW: In the I/O Configuration tree, you will notice a few modules have already been inserted for you. These
modules were inserted to save time and will be used in future labs. You will do the same exercise when
inserting the Stratix 5700 switch. Why are we configuring two different switches in the architecture? Let’s say
the ControlLogix controller happens to be in a different cabinet than the I/O. Each cabinet has its own switch
and you want to read diagnostic status from each switch, hence the need to configure two different switches
in the Studio 5000 I/O Configuration tree.
14 of 91
3.
In the I/O tree, right click on Ethernet below the Local 1756-EN2TR module, and select New Module.

auto-negotiate it will display the current speed and duplex. If you would like to manually set speed and duplex, you can
uncheck “Auto-Negotiate” here. However, for the purpose of this lab, keep “Auto-Negotiate” enabled.
22 of 91
6.
Select the Smartports & VLANs tab.
This tab allows you to assign Smartport roles to the ports. Smartports are port configurations that have been optimized by
Rockwell Automation and Cisco for EtherNet/IP networks. The following Smartports are currently available:

Automation Device

Desktop for Automation

Switch for Automation

Router for Automation

Phone for Automation

Wireless for Automation

Multiport Automation Device

Virtual Desktop for Automation
You should use Smartports to easily optimize your EtherNet/IP network.
Several of the Smartports have built-in MAC address security. When a device is connected to the port the
switch will add the MAC address to the security table. When the device is disconnected, i.e. replaced, the
switch will automatically learn the new MAC address and add it to the table.
23 of 91
You will notice that ports have already been configured for this lab. For example:

Port Fa1/2 = Automation Device (i.e. L75 Controller)

Port Fa1/3 = Automation Device (i.e. L75 Controller)
If the smart port configuration is different, click the Refresh button. If the smart port configuration is still different
please call the lab instructor over to correct this discrepancy.
7.
Select the Port Thresholds Tab
Port thresholds prevent devices from flooding your network with excess traffic. You can limit the broadcast, unicast,
and multicast traffic that can be sent by the device connected to the port. The thresholds can be set to packets per
second, bits per second, or percent utilization. If the threshold is exceeded, the switch will drop traffic below the
specified value.
24 of 91
8.
Select the Port Status tab.
The Port Status tab shows you the alarm states and utilization of the ports.
9.
Click the Port Diagnostics button for Gi1/1.
The Port Diagnostics window shows detailed Ethernet counters and errors for the port.
25 of 91
10. Close the Port Diagnostics window.
Scroll to the right in the row of tabs, and select the DHCP Pool Display tab.
The DHCP Pool Display tab will allow a user to configure and view up to 15 separate DHCP Address Pools. These pools of
IP Addresses are used to automatically configure an end device with an IP address, as long as the end device is set for
DHCP and/ or Boot P. DHCP may be enabled on your device. However, if a Pool is not created, addresses will not be
served to end devices.
26 of 91
11. Select the DHCP Address Assignment tab.
Use the DHCP Address Assignment tab to view and configure DHCP persistence. Every device in an IP-based network
must have a unique IP address. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) automatically assigns IP address
information from a pool of available addresses to newly connected devices (DHCP clients) in the network. If a device leaves
and then re-joins the network, the device receives the next available IP address, which might or might not be the same
address that it had before.
The switch can be set to operate as a DHCP server to provide DHCP persistence. With DHCP persistence, you can assign
a specific IP address to each port, ensuring that the device attached to a given port will have the same address, even if
power cycled or replaced for maintenance.
27 of 91
12. Select the Save/Restore tab.
The Save/Restore tab allows you to save the switch configuration to the Studio 5000 project. It also allows you to export the
configuration files to the local computer.
The “config.text” file is a text file that contains the configuration for the switch.
The “vlan.dat” file is a binary file that contains the VLAN configuration for the switch.
13. Click the Upload button. When prompted for a Password enter ‘rockwell’.
14. Click OK to acknowledge the successful upload. You have now saved the switch configuration to the Studio 5000
project.
15. Click OK to close the Module Properties window.
28 of 91
Stratix 5700 Studio 5000 Module Tags
In this section, you will look at the tags that were added by the Stratix 5700 Add-on Profile.
1.
In the Controller organizer, double-click on the Controller Tags. You will notice the tags are in alphabetical order. To
see the Stratix 5700 tags, browse to the Stratix_5700:I. tags.
2.
Expand the Stratix_5700:I tags.
There are five different types of input tags available:

Fault/Status Tags
The Fault, MajorAlarmRelay, and MinorAlarmRelay tags can be used to notify your application of an error condition on
the network. The MutlicastGroupCount tag gives the number of active multicast groups across all ports on the switch.
29 of 91

Port Connected Tags
The port connected tags can be used by your application to verify that critical devices are connected to the network. A
good example is monitoring a ring of switches. A switch ring can survive a single link failure. Your application can
monitor the ports that make up the ring and notify the operator or maintenance if one of them goes down.

Unauthorized Device Tags
If you are using port security in your network, the unauthorized device tags can be used to notify the operator or
maintenance that an unauthorized device has been detected on the network.

Port Threshold Tags
The port threshold tags can notify your application that a device is misbehaving on your network; A notification of a port
threshold being exceeded.

Port Utilization Tags
The port utilization tags give you percent utilization of each of the ports. These can be used to take a baseline for your
application and alert you if the application deviates from the baseline.
3.
Expand the Stratix_5700:O tags.
The output tags are used to enable or disable ports on the switch. A good example of this is a maintenance port on the side
of a cabinet. The HMI application can be used to ensure that the port is disabled unless a maintenance person enters a
password.
Use caution when using output tags in your program. If you disable a port with the output tag the only way to
enable the port is with the output tag. If you try to enable the port using the Add-on Profile, Device Manager,
CNA, SNMP, or CLI the controller will shut the port down again.
This means if you use a tag to shut down the port connected to the controller the controller will need to be
taken offline before the port can be enabled.
4.
Close the Controller Tags window.
5.
Save the project. Select Yes if prompted to Upload Tags.
30 of 91
We must go offline with the controller to add additional I/O to the project.
6.
Click the green controller icon and Click the Go Offline selection.
Reviewing the Stratix 8000 Add-on Profile and Module Tags
In the interest of saving time, because we would like you to finish the entire lab, we are bypassing the review of the Stratix 8000
AOP and module tags. But if you would like to review this material later, please feel free to do so at the end of the lab.

Lab 3: Stratix 5700/8000 AOI and Diagnostic Faceplates
About this Lab
In this lab you will add the Stratix 5700 Add-on-Instruction (AOI) to the project. You will then review the Stratix 5700 and 8000
Faceplate using FactoryTalk View SE. The AOI feature was added to V16 of RSLogix5000 software and is a way for engineers
to encapsulate application code and essentially create his/her own instruction to be used anywhere in the project. The AOI
feature was used by RA engineers to create instructions that retrieve diagnostic data from an Ethernet device, in this case the
Stratix 5700 and 8000 switches, and send this data to an HMI running FTViewSE or ME where it will be displayed in what we call
a faceplate. These faceplates will be reviewed in the lab later.
Inserting, Configuring, and Reviewing, the Stratix 8000 Faceplate AOI in Studio 5000
Review: To save time the Stratix 8000 AOI has already been added to the project in ladder code and can be seen in the Main
Routine on Rung 2.

these Smartports earlier in Studio 5000.
38 of 91
5.
Click on the Trend button.
The Trend Window shows a trend graph of the switch temperature and the utilization of the selected port. Since there is
very little traffic on the network, utilization will be near 0%. Port utilization should never be above 50%. If it is, this may be a
sign of a broadcast storm or other network issues.
39 of 91
6.
Click on the Trend Legend Button.
The Trend Legends Window displays min/max Water Marks for Utilization and Switch Temp.
40 of 91
7.
Click on the Alarm button.
The Alarms Window screen shows port alarms on the switch. There should not be any right now.
8.
Click on the Broken Wire Test button.
41 of 91
The Broken Wire detection screen is used for Cable Diagnostics. This test will determine if there is a break in the wire.
To exercise this feature, type the switch password “rockwell”, click Enter and click “Login”. Once your password is successfully
validated, select the port at which you would like to perform cable diagnostics and click the Test button.
Note: if the display says “Invalid password”, make sure that you clicked Enter after typing the password.
You will see the results as shown above. “Test Last Run” indicates when the cable diagnostic test was performed on that specific
port. The Status of the cable is shown for each of the pairs (Pair A, B, C, D). The Distance indicates the distance at which the
break is detected. Please note that the distance may not always be very accurate.
9.
Close the Stratix 5700 Diagnostic Faceplate Window.

and so forth…..
44 of 91
3.
Click on the Configure Tab, then Click on the Smartports page. You should see the assigned Smartport. This shows
that smartports have been configured on these ports. You should remember doing this configuration earlier in the
AOP.
4.
Go ahead and click on other folders and review some other features and functionality associated with the Stratix 5700.
Note: Please do not change or save any configuration. This may cause issues for your lab and/or future labs.
5.
Close the Stratix 5700 Web Page when you are finished reviewing it.
45 of 91
Special Note: Once you have added a Stratix switch to the I/O Tree in Studio 5000, anything that is configured in there will
supersede what is configured through the Device Manager (web page). This occurs because of the “CIP” Connection from
Studio 5000. Every time your program scans, the settings in the I/O tree are sent to the switch again. This is especially
important during initial configuration. If you configure your switch through the web page first, then add to the I/O tree, be
sure that you “upload” the configuration from the switch before making additional changes. You’ll recall that we did this step
earlier.
Reviewing the Stratix 8000 Faceplate
In this lab you will review the Stratix 8000 Faceplate using FactoryTalk View SE.
In the interest of saving time, because we would like you to finish the entire lab, we are bypassing the review of the Stratix 8000
AOP and module tags. But if you would like to review this material later, please feel free to do so at the end of the lab.

Lab 4: Device Level Ring (DLR) Topology
About this lab
In this lab we will introduce you to some new products that have come out in the past year. These products are similar to the
ones you may have used in the past but with one exception. They have dual port embedded Ethernet switch technology inside
enabling them to be placed in what we call a Device Level Ring or DLR.
A Device Level Ring is created when you connect dual port devices together similar to connecting devices in a daisy- chain
fashion. When the final Ethernet cable is connected from the end DLR device back to the first DLR device what was a Linear
Topology becomes a Ring Topology.
An advantage of using a Device Level Ring instead of a Linear/Star Topology is that it provides for network resilience by giving
Ethernet traffic two paths to travel down. So if there is a failure somewhere in the ring, Ethernet packets of information will travel
the opposite direction. And with an assigned Ring Supervisor Configured, you will know and understand that a failure occurred
and what two DLR Devices it happened between.
As seen below, some of these new DLR Devices are the 1756-EN2TR, 1734-AENTR, 1738-AENTR and for devices that do not
have the Dual Port Embedded switches, like the Power Flex Drives or Managed Switches the 1783-ETAP can be used to
connect those devices to the DLR ring.
47 of 91
Our DLR Ring consists of a 1756-EN2TR, a 1783-ETAP, and a 1734-AENTR as seen below. The Ethernet cable connected to
Port 2 of the EN2TR module in slot 3 of the Top CLX Chassis for the DLR Ring devices will remain disconnected until
we enable the DLR Supervisor of the Network in a later step.
Note: DLR Ethernet ports for the 1756-EN2TR and 1783-ETAP module are located at the bottom underneath the front grey cover
of the module.
Before physically building a Device Level Ring:
** At least one node on the network must be enabled as a ring supervisor before physically connecting up a Device Level Ring.
Without a ring supervisor, the ring is essentially an unmanaged loop, where traffic can quickly overload and take down the
network.
48 of 91
A ring supervisor is an important component of a Device Level Ring network.
It has two key functions:
 It manages the traffic on the ring and sends out heartbeats to monitor the health of the network.
 It keeps the diagnostic information of the network and makes it available to the users (i.e.: ring health status, location of
wire break).
The 1756-EN2TR and the 1783-ETAP are both supervisor-capable devices. Supervisor function is disabled by default for these
devices. Users can enable the supervisor function by utilizing the Studio 5000 Add On Profile (AOP) for 1756-EN2TR and 1783ETAP, or via RSLinx Classic v2.56 or greater.

Inserting, Configuring, and Reviewing, the DLR Diagnostic Faceplate AOI in Studio 5000
In this lab you will insert, configure, and review the DLR Diagnostic Faceplate AOI. This Diagnostic AOI will pull data from the
1756-EN2TR (DLR Supervisor) and send it to the DLR Diagnostic Faceplate in FTViewSE.
One feature, starting with the V17 release of Studio 5000 gives us the ability to Import and Export Tasks, Programs, Routines,
UDT’s and AOI’s. When Importing a Task, Program, or Routine all Tags, UDT’s, and AOI’s will be imported automatically into the
project.
Review: To save time the DLR Diagnostic Faceplate AOI has already been imported into the project, as seen below under the
Add-On-Instruction in the Tree, but has not been inserted or configured in ladder code yet.

Enabling the DLR Ring Supervisor
Before physically building a Device Level Ring:
** At least one node on the network must be enabled as a ring supervisor before physically connecting up a Device Level Ring.
Without a ring supervisor, the ring is essentially an unmanaged loop, where traffic can quickly overload and take down the
network.
A ring supervisor is an important component of a Device Level Ring network.
It has two key functions:
It manages the traffic on the ring and sends out heartbeats to monitor the health of the network.
It keeps the diagnostic information of the network and makes it available to the users (i.e.: ring health status, location of wire
break).
The 1756-EN2TR and the 1783-ETAP are both supervisor-capable devices. Supervisor function is disabled is the default out-ofbox setting for these devices. Users can enable the supervisor function by utilizing the Studio 5000 Add On Profile (AOP) for
1756-EN2TR and 1783-ETAP, or via RSLinx Classic v2.56 or greater.
1. Referring back to the I/O Configuration Tree. Double Click the 1756-EN2TR module in Slot 3 to enter its properties
window.
68 of 91
2. Click on the Network Tab. If the Enable Supervisor Mode box is already checked, uncheck this box. Select Yes to
the DANGER: Connection Loss Apply change dialog. You will notice that the Network Topology is registering that
there is a Linear/ Star Topology and the Network Status is registering Normal. This status is an indication that the
network is indeed a star/ linear topology and a Ring Supervisor has not been enabled yet.
69 of 91
3. Check the Enable Supervisor Mode Box, and watch the status change. If the field is already selected, try unchecking
it and see what happens; then re-check to continue. Now you see that the Network Topology is registering Ring and
the Network Status is registering a Ring Fault. This is because we have not physically attached the final Ethernet cable
that will convert this linear topology into a ring topology yet.
Also the Active Ring Supervisor is IP Address 192.168.1.4. which is the 1756-EN2TR module. Do not close this
window, we will return to it momentarily.
70 of 91
Attaching the Ethernet Cable to the DLR Devices
In this lab we will attach the Ethernet cable to the final DLR device.
1. Please review the Ethernet wiring diagram below. As you can see we are using the 1783-ETAP as the device that will
attach your DLR Ring to the Stratix 5700 switch that does not have DLR Capabilities.
2. One end of the DLR Ethernet cables is disconnected between DLR devices. Attach the Ethernet cable number 4 to the
1756-EN2TR (Slot 3) port 2 . When attaching these cables please note the number associated with the DLR device
port/ link. Always attach Port 1 on the starting device to port 2 of the next device. DLR Ethernet ports for the 1756EN2TR and 1783-ETAP modules are located at the bottom underneath the front grey cover of the module.
71 of 91
3. Now refer back to the EN2TR’s module properties and click on the Refresh Communications Button then the Reset
Counters Button. This will update the window with current data and clear all faults. Now you should see that the
Network Status is Normal.
Congratulations: You have successfully configured a DLR Network.
72 of 91
DLR Diagnostic Display in FTViewSE
This portion of the lab will review the DLR Diagnostic Display in FTViewSE.
Now that you have everything configured on the Logix Side lets refer back to the FTViewSE Client you have running in the
background and more specifically the DLR Ring.
1. Click on the DLR Diagnostic Faceplate Button located near the 1756-EN2TR module.
Note: If the DLR faceplate comes up with a red banner stating that the faceplate msging is not communicating, change
the keyswitch from run – program – run and this will clear the msg fault. This should only occur once.
73 of 91
2. The DLR Diagnostic Display should appear. You just saw some of the same information on the 1756-EN2TR module
properties/ Network tab.
Under the Device Level Ring- Network Status Overview:



Network Status: Normal (Which means that the Ring Network is established and working as expected.)
Number of Nodes: 3 (These are the number of nodes on the DLR network)
Fault Count: The running total on how many times the ring has faulted.
Under the Ring Supervisor Information:

Ring Supervisor: Identifies who the Ring Supervisor is for the Ring Topology.



IP: Identified the Ring Supervisors IP address.
MAC: Identifies the Ring Supervisors MAC ID Number
Precedence: This value identifies which supervisor-enabled node is the active supervisor. The node with the
highest value wins the supervisor arbitration.
74 of 91
3. Now let’s simulate a fault. Disconnect the cable at one end between the 1734-AENTR and the 1783-ETAP and watch
the DLR Diagnostic Display. What did you see?
Note: When the DLR fault occurs, the Device Level Ring will flash red
4. You should see that there is a Ring Fault. This is indicated by the Alarm Bell changing from grey to blinking red and the
Ring Fault count has incremented by 1.
75 of 91
5. So where is the fault you ask yourself? Click on the Blinking Red Alarm Bell button. You should see that the break is
between Ethernet nodes 192.168.1.5 (1734-AENTR) and 192.168.1.6 (1783-ETAP).
Another advantage to using a DLR Ring over a Linear/Star Topology is that you have single fault tolerance capabilities.
Take a look at the 1734-OB8E Outputs to ensure that they are still blinking.
76 of 91
You can also see this status info on the 1756-EN2TR Webpage and/or its Module Properties Page (AOP).
6. Click on the
Button located on the bottom of the FTViewSE Application.
77 of 91
7. Click on the Diagnostics Folder and browse to the Ring Statistics page. There you will see the same Ring Status
and Fault Data. Close Internet Explorer when you are finished reviewing.
8. To view the same data on the 1756-EN2TR’s AOP, go back to the I/O Configuration Tree of Studio 5000 and Double
click on the 1756-EN2TR.
78 of 91
9. Browse to the Network Tab and sure enough there is the same DLR Supervisor Data.
79 of 91
10. Reattach the Ethernet cable between 1734-AENTR and the 1783-ETAP. Your DLR Diagnostic Display should be
reading Normal again.
This concludes the DLR the lab.

during the normal lab steps.
Power cycle the demo box (if resetting between sessions or different labs). Wait approximately 2-3 minutes for
85 of 91
switches to boot (port LEDs should start to flash green).
3.
Restart the lab image on the PC. The PC should have a static IP address of 192.168.1.30.
4.
Move the PC Ethernet cable to the Stratix 5700 port Fa1/1. This is a temporary connection to restore the 5700 switch
configuration. You will move the cable back to the Stratix 8000 switch when finished.
5.
Restore the configuration on the Stratix 5700 switch using the Cisco Network Assistant (CNA).
a.
Start the CNA (shortcut on the desktop).
b.
Click Cancel when prompted for Cisco CCO credentials.
c.
Select or type 192.168.1.2 in the Connect To field and click OK.
d.
Enter rockwell as a password. Leave the username filed as blank.

Note: If the login fails, try to enter username admin and password rockwell. This may happen
when a switch has just been upgraded to the new firmware and reset with the Express Setup
procedure. After restoring configuration, only the password is needed.
e.
Select Maintenance – Configuration Archive in the menu.
f.
Select Restore tab. Select the option Show backed-up configurations of the selected device type. Select the
first item in the list. Make sure that the note says Basic Lab Stratix 5700 Configuration. Click Restore.
g.
Wait until the message says Restore complete. Click OK. In the pop-up box, click Restart.

h.
Click OK and exit the CNA program. The switch will restart in 60 seconds. The boot time for the Stratix 5700
is approximately 1 minute.
6.
Move the PC Ethernet cable back to the Stratix 8000 port Fa1/1. This connection will be used for the lab.
7.
Restore the configuration on the Stratix 8000 switch using the Cisco Network Assistant (CNA).
a.
Start the CNA (shortcut on the desktop). Click Cancel when prompted for Cisco CCO credentials. Select
192.168.1.1 in the Connect To field and click OK.
Important: If the demo box was used for the Advanced EtherNet/IP lab previously, the connection
may sometimes fail. If this happens, change IP address of the PC to 10.10.10.30 and move the
cable to Stratix 8000 Fa1/2. Make sure to change the address back to 192.168.1.30 and move the
cable back to Fa1/1 when Step 7 is finished.
b.
Enter rockwell as a password. Leave the username filed as blank.
c.
Select Maintenance – Configuration Archive in the menu.
d.
Select Restore tab. Select the option Show backed-up configurations of the selected device type. Select the
first item in the list. Make sure that the note says Basic Lab Configuration for Stratix 8000. Click Restore.

e.
Wait until the message says Restore complete. Click OK. In the pop-up box, click Restart.
f.
Click OK and exit the CNA program. The switch will restart in 60 seconds. The boot time for the Stratix 8000
is approximately 2 minutes.
Note to Steps 4-7: Switch configurations will not change during the normal steps of this lab. However, it is
necessary to restore configurations between the sessions in case of unintended modifications.
8.
Verify IP address assignment for the EN2TR modules.
a.
“Machine” EN2TR slot 1 (Top CLX) - 192.168.1.3 (Static IP mode)
b.
“Machine” EN2TR slot 3 (Top CLX) - 192.168.1.4 (Static IP mode)
c.
“Line” EN2TR slot 1 (Bottom CLX) – 192.168.1.20 (DHCP/BOOTP mode)

Lab Troubleshooting
Some of the issues that may happen during the lab and during the reset are listed here.
Possible Issues During the Lab
Problem
Faceplate for the Stratix switch comes up with a
red banner stating communication issues
Troubleshooting Steps
Change the key switch for the Line Controller (Bottom CLX) from Run –
Program – Run. This should clear the MSG fault and usually occurs only
once.
Faceplate for the DLR comes up with a red
banner stating communication issues
Change the key switch for the Machine Controller (Top CLX) from Run –
Program – Run. This should clear the MSG fault and usually occur only once.
“Invalid Password” message when trying Broken
Wire Test in the switch faceplate
Make sure that users hit Enter after typing the password, and then click
Login.
Possible Issues When Resetting the Lab
Problem
Cannot login to the switch via the CNA or
webpage using rockwell password.
Cannot restore configurations using the CNA.
Restore process fails.
Cannot connect to the Stratix 8000 switch after
the demo box was used in the Advanced EIP lab.
Cannot connect to the switch via the CNA or
webpage using the normal steps. Cannot ping
192.168.1.x address of the switch from the PC.
Troubleshooting Steps
Try to enter username admin and password rockwell. The issue may be
that the switch has been updated with the new firmware and the Express
Setup procedure applied. The latest firmware requires a username for the
Express Setup. After the correct lab configuration is restored with the CNA,
only password is required.
Verify that Windows firewall is disabled. Verify that Symantec or other
antivirus software is not running on the PC. It seems like Symantec software
on the computers with a standard RA image requires connection to the
corporate network to allow TFTP connections. There should be no issues
with the event PCs.
Try to connect using 10.10.10.30 address and Stratix 8000 Fa1/2 port. This
should NOT apply when resetting between the Basic EIP sessions.
Try the following steps to resolve the issue:
1. Make sure that direct connection is made to the switch through the
correct port (Fa1/1).
2. Verify the IP address of the PC (192.168.1.30).
3. Reset the demo box.
4. Reboot the PC (physical machine, not VM).
5. In case if the switch configuration has been altered (wrong IP address,
wrong VLAN on the port etc.), the switch needs to be reset to the factory
default configuration and the correct IP address should be assigned.
This can be done using the Express Setup button. Please refer to the
product manual.
6. Serial console connection and CLI can also be used to correct the
configuration (requires knowledge of IOS commands).
7. After the switch has been reset to the factory default configuration and
correct IP address has been assigned, use the CNA to restore the lab
configuration.
